International Cooperation for Sustainable Energy Strategies | Energy Access & the Nexus with Water and Food

December 4-5, 2013
Politecnico di Milano, Aula Rogers - Via Ampère 2, Milan

International cooperation is nowadays considered an essential element for the promotion of global energy strategies that can meet the four main dimensions of sustainability: economic, environmental, social and institutional. Politecnico di Milano and Enel Foundation, in cooperation with Fondazione Politecnico and Unesco Chair in Energy for Sustainable Development, jointly organize a two-days international conference to serve as high-level platform for networking and scientific exchange in the field. In the perspective of an integrated approach to resource management, energy is closely linked to other resources, in particular water and food. Avai­lability and security of water, energy and food can be achieved through an integrated approach. This conference represents an high level opportunity to discuss on these topics.
